2questions in1

So my factory jack had an unfortunate accident with my moms jeeps wheel...needless to say its broken...what should I replace it with? Where would I find one? I'm only gonna use it to change a tire if I get a flat.

Secondly I just installed a rudded ridge snorkel and I live I'm Ohio. When it's snowing will snow build up in the high mount and clog it? Also what effect does rain have in snorkels?

i thought there was a small hole in the bottom of the snorkel for rain drainage. is there not one?

for the jack - i'd probably go and try to find a bottle jack as a replacement. harbor freight, sears, 4WP, or an autozone or something...

Yes there is it has a manual drain I was just curious about like down pour rain of that could cause an issue

And how big of a jack should I get? Or are the all pretty much the same?

Consider a HiJack you can also use it as a cum-a-long.

how big of a lift do you have? or as suggested, just use your hi-lift. that's all i use. works okay for me. thankfully i've only had to use it once.

I have a 3" lift with 34s but I was actually thinking About the hilift and I thought changing a tire with them isn't exactly safe?

Do you have rock rails? If so, I would use the Hi Lift and jack it up using the rails.

Many that don't have a hi lift use a bottle jack.

that's not true. a lot of folks are afraid of the hi-lift. it's an awesome tool if you use it properly. i always throw the spare under my rig if i'm jacking... no matter what jack i use. that's a safety precaution.

also don't jack it way up so it's real off camber. and i try to jack from the rubi rail closest to the tire i need to remove.

always hold the handle with two hands... it can spring back on you if you don't pay attention. just have to pay attention when you use it.

Hmm ill have to look more into this.

Anyone have any idea about the snorkel in snow? Will it clog up?
